“A handy guidebook that profiles a building per page, with a drawing and vital statistics on most of Chicago’s major historic and modern buildings.”—Chicago Tribune Updated and expanded to chart the changing urban landscape of Chicago--as well as to incorporate a section on Chicago’s campus architecture, including works by Rem Koolhaas at the Illinois Institute of Technology and Frank Lloyd Wright at the University of Chicago--the second edition of this popular handbook is a perfect companion for walking tours and an excellent source of background information for exploring the internationally acclaimed architecture of Chicago. Over 100 highlights of downtown Chicago are covered, from Michigan Avenue to the riverfront to the Loop, with accompanying maps, a glossary of architectural terms, and an index of architects and buildings.
